Ernie Lazar FOIA Collection

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a federal freedom of information law that allows for the full or partial disclosure of previously unreleased information and documents controlled by the United States government. The Act defines agency records subject to disclosure, outlines mandatory disclosure procedures and grants nine exemptions to the statute. It was originally signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson, despite his misgivings, on July 4, 1966 as 5 U.S.C. § 552 and went into effect the following year.

For decades, Ernie Lazar has filed a large amount of requests under the Freedom of Information Act, related to FBI investigations of left and right wing groups, resulting in over 2,000 files, which have been scanned in and put into this collection. They are separated into large general subjects:
